Grace Choi, a Harvard Business School grad, took the stage at TechCrunch Disrupt earlier this month to introduce a home beauty device that could shake up the market more than say, Clarisonic or Chi blowdryer. Her game is 3D printed makeup, based on the notion that major manufacturers simply are printing different color combinations on uniform formulas. Her desktop printer, Mink, is slated to retail for a few hundred dollars, hooking up to any computer and allowing the user to print custom hex code colors onto powder eyeshadow and creamy lipsticks. And as anyone with a prestige cosmetics habit knows, you can quickly rack up that same expense in a single trip to Sephora. Watch the presentation here.
